Praise for My Journey of Faith
In 2003 I, a stranger to Mr. Mulli, sent him a letter offering to transport three of his children across Canada on the back of a modified tandem bike, creating awareness and raising funds for MCF. Three weeks later he replied, “After discussion with my wife, Esther, my biological family, and seeking God’s will through prayer, I believe this to be the beginning of a lifetime partnership.” We were amazed at the faith required to trust a complete stranger with his kids.
As you read My Journey of Faith you, too, will be amazed by his example of unwavering faith in God, inspired to trust God more in your own journey and motivated to put your faith into action.
Arvid Loewen, founder of GrandpasCan, director with MCF Canada

I highly recommend the amazing story of this man and wife of compassion and action. The wealthy, successful Mully family abandoned their earthly riches and social prestige so they could transform despair into radiant hope for the desperate broken street kids of Kenya. Though insane by earthly standards, they were totally sane by God’s standards and very wise investors. Their riches now are not in money or land but in thousands of transformed lives in Kenya and beyond. The future, though not yet written, may be even greater than the past. I am highly honoured to be counted among their friend for many years.
Rev. Jack Hawkins, Minister at Large with OM Canada

Dr. Charles Mulli’s 25th anniversary account, My Journey of Faith , is a remarkable testimony to God’s power and God’s grace in every situation. The unspeakable things Charles Mulli saw and endured were overcome when he accepted Christ and gave his life to God. Charles Mulli’s heart for the children who walk the streets and endure hunger, exploitation and fear, just like he did as a young boy, changed the heart of Africa and beyond. Dr. Mulli’s complete surrender to God and His will allowed Dr. Mulli to be blessed beyond his expectations. There were miracles, one after another, solely because Dr. Mulli believed that anything was possible through Christ. This book is a testimony to us all. It is a walk of faith all of us as Christians benefit from reading. My Journey of Faith brings Dr. Mulli’s journey of faith alive and real to all of us. His story leaves us with inspiration to carry on in tough times because God is real and He is always with us.

Many people dream of doing something that matters, of making a difference in the world, of impacting lives. The incredible truth about Charles’ life is that he is actually doing something that matters; he is making a real difference in this world and he is impacting lives in a most profound way. And how beautiful that Mully Children’s Family all began with a simply act of human kindness and an awareness of those who were suffering in Charles’ community. My Journey of Faith is a very human story. It is a story of suffering and triumph, of compassion and celebration, of self-sacrifice and trust in God.

My wife, Erna, and I visited the Mully orphanage several years ago. We were moved by the love and care for the homeless children of Africa. For us, this book completes the story of why the orphanage exists. Charles Mulli, the founder, tells it with candour and honesty. We read of his call from God to leave his successful business career to rescue children from abject poverty and abuse. The lasting transformation of thousands of children leaves a legacy that glorifies God.

My Journey Of Faith gives us a personal insight into the challenges Charles Mulli has overcome in his mission of love in rescuing children in Africa. From his difficult beginnings as an abandoned child to becoming successful in business, Charles Mulli describes how God used these circumstances to shape him for his eventual role of being a father to so many fatherless children. He explains how, when circumstances seemed hopeless, he trusted in God. I have personally been amazed at his life. In spite of all the many great accomplishments, his life is one of simple and profound surrender to and reliance on Jesus. And it is this love for Jesus that impacts everything he does. In this book, Charles Mulli shows us that a life of faith is not just for a simple few. Rather, it is accessible to us all. Each of us wants our life to count. And Charles Mulli points us to how that is possible through a relationship with Christ.

Foreword
There is only one valid explanation for a true work of God—it is that God Himself is its source and its strength. Paul wrote in Romans 15:18, “I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me.” That is the only story worth telling, and this is one such story you hold in your hand. It is an unfinished story of what Christ is accomplishing in that beautiful land of Kenya and in the broken lives of some of its people.
Not many parents can lay claim to having 2,500 children, but such is the relationship of Charles and Esther Mulli to their adopted family that each child knows them as “Mummy” and “Daddy.” From the very small beginning of taking three young, helpless street children into their home to live alongside their biological family, Charles and Esther have become established as parents (as some have said) of the largest family in the world! But it’s not just that they provide a roof over their heads and food in their stomachs, but a whole enterprise of education, health care, the development of barren land, business, a model of agriculture to the wider community and so much more has come about. Every sphere of life is included.
Of course there are human elements in this story. Charles Mulli himself had become a wealthy Kenyan businessman, despite the poverty and lack of opportunity of his own childhood. He laid aside all the benefits of material prosperity to invest in those who had nothing. But this alone does not suffice as an explanation! It is a story of the living God, taking possession of a humble family and enabling a stream of life to flow out of their hearts to bless and enrich others.
This work did not grow out of vision but out of opportunity. Every true work of God starts that way. As one opportunity is taken, another presents itself, ever growing, ever expanding, until a pattern and picture become clear about the way ahead. Part of that picture is unfinished. A university is now planned to provide a level of education and qualification for those unable to afford the normal means. And what next? Only God, in whose heart this began, really knows!
Enjoy this book, enjoy this family, and enjoy the God who is making it all happen.
Charles Price, former senior pastor of People’s Church in Toronto, Canada and host of Living Truth, an hour-long international television ministry program
Introduction
Each of us is on a journey through life. We have the opportunity to choose the direction our life on earth will take. In my life, at a time when everything seemed completely hopeless, I responded to God’s call and surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. That simple, profound act set my life on a journey of faith in rescuing thousands of children through Mully Children’s Family (MCF) in Africa. I have experienced the tra
